The Georgia High School Association has NOT received File “B” which would be a hardship application for Demetris Robertson to play football this year at Savannah Christian. Robertson spent the past two seasons playing for the Hornets at Savannah Country Day School. Robertson transferred and attended classes for the first time today on the Chatham Parkway campus. He practiced throughout camp and even participated in the Hornets scrimmage Thursday.
Demetris Robertson is a junior defensive back that committed to the Alabama Crimson Tide back in July. http://www.wsav.com/story/26039479/scdss-robertson-excited-to-roll-with-the-tide
For Robertson to be eligible he must apply for a “Hardship” application to be immediately eligible. The GHSA confirms that they have NOT received any paperwork. Robertson is eligible to practice with the team as long as he is enrolled in school. Any Hardship applications would be reviewed by Georgia High School Association Executive Director Gary Phillips or Associate Director Carror Wright.
Reached by phone earlier today, Robertson’s legal guardian, his brother Carlos Robertson, tells WSAV that the decision was a tough one. “Savannah Country Day has done a lot for Demetris. We appreciate everything Coach (Dennis) Coyle has done.”
